“Most people are searching for happiness. They are trying to find it in someone or something outside of themselves. That’s a fundamental mistake.” Wayne Dyer
A story told by Wayne Dyer
A man is getting ready to go out one night when suddenly there is a power black out. He can see nothing in front of him or behind him, and in his anxiousness to leave, he drops the keys. He sighs and realizes, it is pointless trying to find them in the dark. But then he looks outside and sees there is a street light on and says, “Why would I look for my keys here in the dark when there is a light on outside?”
And so he begins to look for his keys under the light outside, when a neighbor comes out and asks, “What are you doing?” He replies, “I’m looking for my car keys” and so, together they look for them. After several minutes the neighbor finally asks, “Where did you actually drop the keys?” To which he replies, “Inside the house!” Frustrated, the neighbor says, “Why would you look outside for something that can only be found on the inside?!“
Where are we looking to create change or for things we need in life?
